Yep again! All that crap about putting aside $2k per yr (I am old enough to have been around for the start of the IRA approach during Reaganomics) and then just sit back and watch it grow...did I mention I naively went for it when they showed me the million I would have after 30 yrs? Did I mention that I asked how my measely $2k per yr would achieve this transformation and was told that "Well,...we apply a very REASONABLE growth rate of 12% per yr...maybe 18%!"?

Can you say "not so fast!"?

Did I mention that my IRA looks more like 3% growth? Did I mention that I am planning on working for a very long time?

At least I love what I do...probably would've worked til I dropped anyhow, but just thought I might have more choices than I have ended up with...

Not sure how many kids you have Mr. Tell - I have 4 so I will be working till I die or until one of them strikes it rich and generously decides to support their old and addled parents.

Well at least we have good tunes to listen to!!

And it is Friday!!!
